    Specifically:


    Can you say anything about if there is going to be a third season?

    We have not got an official pick-up yet, but we are beginning talks. I’m optimistic, but I don’t have the final, official word yet. I think the show has been doing well for them. The studio loves the show. It sells well in foreign sales. So, I am optimistic, but as I often say in this business it is nothing until it is something.

    Sadly, TV Guide only publishes these pieces in defense of shows that are likely to be cancelled.

    By the way, why does it seem Marina Sirtis always has a different, awkwardly performed accent? Between her bad Russian accent in SG1 and this.

    Tangentially related: Halston Sage's newest film is out on Netflix streaming as of yesterday. It is called an ensemble romantic comedy titled The Last Summer. TVGuide was unkind to it.

    Also, I have decided to headcanon that every time a Star Trek actor appears in Orville, it's because The Orville survived to the 24th century and became a holonovel, and the character from Star Trek is playing the holonovel.

    That means it'd be interesting when we see Tom Paris or Reg Barclay show up....

    Pretty sure the 'accent' she uses in The Orville is a slightly more refined version of her normal speaking voice, which is a working class london/hackney accent.

    There's also her Israeli accent in NCIS.

    Speaking of Jack McDevitt, his latest Alex Benedict book, Octavia Gone, came out yesterday.

    I said out, dammit!
    Great timing mentioning McDevitt! I just finished Moonfall this weekend!
    I love the Pricilla Hutchins series.

    I started reading The World of The Orville this morning, and there have already been a couple interesting bits of info.
    According to David Goodman's foreward, there was only a month between Seth McFarlane telling him he had an idea for a new show and The Orville being picked up for a 12 episode first season.
    The writing staff was split in half between drama writers and comedy writers, but in the end they all ended up doing everything.

    Joe Menosky is now on the Orville writing staff, so he could do a Darmok sequel.

    So Starfleet designers were all fans of this obscure 21st century show, and based their organization and tech loosely on the show?

    I just had a horrific thought...the finale for the third and final season...an episode about Tom Paris and Harry Kim playing an episode of Orville to decide which Delaney sister to date...
